520    It has become popular to blame the American obesity 
       epidemic and many other health-related problems on 
       processed food. Many of these criticisms are valid for 
       some processed-food items, but many statements are 
       overgeneralizations that unfairly target a wide range 
       products that contribute to our health and well-being. In 
       addition, many of the proposed dangers allegedly posed by 
       eating processed food are exaggerations based on highly 
       selective views of experimental studies. We crave simple 
       answers to our questions about food, but the science 
       behind the proclamations of food pundits is not nearly as 
       clear as they would have you believe. This book presents a
       more nuanced view of the benefits and limitations of food 
       processing and exposes some of the tricks both Big Food 
       and its critics use to manipulate us to adopt their point 
       of view. Food is a source of enjoyment, a part of our 
       cultural heritage, a vital ingredient in maintaining 
       health, and an expression of personal choice. We need to 
       make those choices based on credible information and not 
       be beguiled by the sophisticated marketing tools of Big 
       Food nor the ideological appeals and gut feelings of self-
       appointed food gurus who have little or no background in
